Live Reviews


“Dawson Smith and his band The Dissenters

always deliver the perfect blend of

high energy rock ‘n’ Americana

blues rock how its meant to be!

switch-blade tight with no frills and great songs!”

Blues Matters 2020


"The Dissenters had constant forward momentum

throughout with solid riffs and classic songs,

it made for an excellent set. Dawson had some awesome banter with the crowd and seemed 

genuinely humbled by the adoration of the fans”


Sheffield 02 Academy

"New band to me but Dawson Smith And The Dissenters  played a blinder!  A rocking blues and Americana masterclass. Well chosen covers and great original songs. Ones to watch! " - POWER PLAY


"Meanwhile, the harder edge of Americana was being blended with Blues Rock in the shape of DAWSON SMITH AND THE DISSENTERS on stage two. This Leicester-based outfit upped the pace and injected some serious Blues licks and vocals into proceedings; it was a rousing set which got feet tapping and hands clapping all around!"
